Children & Infant Baggage


We try to make traveling with kids as easy and convenient as possible. So, before you head out to the airport with your little ones, find out how much of your child’s baggage to bring and know about complimentary checking your stroller or safety seat. Review our child baggage guidelines for specific details on regarding checked baggage. 

Complimentary Checked Strollers, Child Safety Seats & Other Infant Items


Children’s strollers and child safety seats are not counted as part of the standard baggage and therefore can be easily checked for free. For your convenience, these items may be checked at the curbside, the ticket counter or at the gate. 

Child safety seats may be brought on board the plane in certain circumstances. If you booked a seat for your child or if there is an open passenger seat in your row, you may place your child in an FAA-approved child safety seat during take-off and landing. If you have not purchased a seat for your child or an extra passenger seat is not available, the item must be checked at the gate by a Delta representative.

In addition to one bag carry-on allowance, you may bring a booster seat, other infant seat or bassinet on the plane as an additional free item, which is still subject to carry-on size restrictions. If you carry on an infant seat or bassinet, it must be secured tightly by a seatbelt to be stored on an aircraft seat. 

Not all seats allow for the use of child safety and booster seats. Be sure to review the type of seat available on the aircraft for your upcoming flight

Per federal regulations, a child safety or booster seat cannot be used at any time on the Delta One flatbed seats on the Boeing 777 aircraft. Per FAA regulations, children under 2 years of age are not allowed to sit in a seat equipped with an airbag seat belt.
